Hello Miss Bump-

I'm assuming you'll be traveling from Dublin, because I know they fly there. They are a GREAT airline as a matter of face. I took them from Frankfurt and onward to Bangkok. All the planes were modern and each had a personal TV in every seat. Flight attendants spoke about a million languages it seemed. Connect in Abu Dhabi isnt bad at all...even though all the flights seem to come in at midnight and leave at like 3 am (local). It will def split up the trip for you coming from connecting in Bangkok or Singapore too...

Hope this helps...Rob

Etihad are a top of the range airline that are selling cheap to compete with Gulf Air and establish business on their new routes.

Highly recommend them. They're a much better than most other options for the same route.

Etihad are the national arline of united arab emirates, based in abu dhabi. They have Very new aircraft which are mainly A330's and 777's . They are Unlike a lot of new starter airlines that buy old airplanes from other carriers, so you will be fine. Also Emirates are an exceptional airline along with Etihad.
